A charity run is set to be held in memory of a regional journalist who died last year aged 25.
Newark Advertiser sports reporter Warwick Lane, left, passed away in August this year just weeks after being diagnosed with cancer for a second time.
Prior to his death, Warwick raised more than £1,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust and had also teamed up with blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan in a bid to raise awareness of people awaiting stem cell transplants.
The campaign, known on social media as #WarwicksWarriors, urged more people, especially those aged 16 to 30, to join the Anthony Nolan donor register.
Now Sandra Neil, a friend of Warwick’s family, has organised ‘Rick’s Run’ for 24 March, which will raise funds for both charities.
She told the Advertiser: “I need lots of volunteers and if possible a company to sponsor t-shirts for this event.”
In November, a concert organised by Gill Kent and Karen Rayner, who taught Warwick at primary school, raised £1,400 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
